    Good to know, Darryl. And what should a newbie expect at such meeting?
    It's OK for guys from just around the corner, but is it worth riding several hours
    to get there?

    From Hamilton to Welland for breakfast is about an hour. Think of it as a chance to get in a ride on a Sunday morning.

    Anywhere is Worth the RIDE!

    ... but is it worth riding several hours
    to get there?
    In my world; unless I have something important that must be done, ANYWHERE is worth the RIDE! Lucky me!
    And if food (or a single malt beverage) is involved

    It's good to see our Canadian brothers and sisters welcoming new members and expanding their membership. You guys are kicking butt up there. Keep up the good work, and welcome to the forum kjaw.

    Welcome, and yes it is a nice easy ride to Welland. Take the Ridge Road from Hamilton, you'll enjoy it.

    The CVMG Paris National Rally is featuring the airhead this year. It is always on Father's Day weekend, and Paris is very close. Pre-register to save money (and pre-order t-shirts I think they will sell out quickly!)

    We canadians are used to kick each others butt to keep it from freezing!
    Until they came up with heated seats, so now we are just fine!
    No more butt kicking!! Thank God!!
